Private Sandy Toes by Helicopter

Welcome to Nassau, the capital city of The Bahamas. Located on 21-mile-long New Providence, this is the 11th largest island, where the main harbor is protected by Paradise Island. With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, nearly every day is a perfect day to take to the air. Cumulus clouds normally dot the sky at around 2,500 feet in the morning, rising to 7,500 feet in the afternoon, making for the ideal conditions for flying.

After a short and easy walk from the cruise ship pier, you will arrive to the heliport on Bay Street in downtown Nassau. Meet your friendly, professional staff and be provided a safety briefing conducted by your pilot/guide. And now it's time to buckle in and take to the skies over the Bahamas where an epic, sightseeing adventure will unfold before your eyes.

Your private tour will include flying over the exclusive and luxurious Baha Mar resort, Atlantis resort on Paradise Island and beyond. An extended trip east of Paradise Island will take you over vivid turquoise, crystal-clear waters to Rose Island, the most desired spot for local boaters. Pristine Sandy Toes Rose Island is a remote and uninhabited, tropical private island that is spectacular from the air.

Seeing the Bahamas in an air-conditioned helicopter will give you an entire new vantage point. The pristine white sands of Nassau's Cable Beach are certainly a breath-taking experience to view from above. Take advantage of a whole new way of seeing the Bahamas, a way you have never seen before!

Please Note: Actual flight time will be approximately 25 minutes. A safety briefing is given to warn of helicopter blades and the use of life vests, etc. Each passenger has a waist inflatable vest plus the helicopter is equipped with pop-up floats. The helicopter used for this tour accommodates groups of up to 6 guests maximum. Please take this information into consideration when booking.

About Shore Excursions Group
Shore Excursions Group logo
Shore Excursions Group was created with one goal in mind: to provide exceptional travel experiences to cruise passengers in the ports they visit around the world. To accomplish this, we have compiled an exceptional array of tours delivered by local experts with decades of experience serving travelers and delivering excellent tours. Our owners and management team are comprised of seasoned travel industry executives who leverage their considerable experience to deliver memories of a lifetime.

We are experts in providing exceptional shore excursions. We understand that in today's fast paced world, vacations have become an increasingly important way to relax, reconnect with family and friends, and experience new and interesting places. With this in mind, we provide the highest quality tours by performing extensive research, and detailed reviews. While other companies also offer excursions, we strongly believe our expertise and approach set us apart. The large cruise lines sell shore excursions - typically in very large groups visiting high traffic sites. We focus on smaller groups visiting more interesting and authentic locations using more personalized local operators. While the cruise lines are experts in delivering cruises, we are experts in delivering shore excursions.

Our Approach
We believe quality service is not only highly valued by customers, but ultimately leads to better experiences and higher satisfaction. Unlike the cruise lines and other tour companies that rely almost entirely on websites, we encourage customers to call us. We want to invest our time answering your questions, providing input, and selecting the excursions that best meet your needs.

Our Tours
Our goal is to provide customers a wide array of exciting, appealing, and enriching tours. For those customers who prefer to travel in smaller groups with more personalized service, we offer a wide variety of small group tours around the world. These tours generally range in size from 2-12 people compared to larger tours which can number up to 50 people. While exploring the destinations and ports on this website, feel free to search for these "Small Group Tours". For those customers interested in private tours, we offer many outstanding excursions that allow you to travel with your party alone and, in many cases, to fully customize your tour. Search for "Private Tours" if you are interested in this experience. Our "Scenic" tours provide up close and personal access to some of the most spectacular natural environments on Earth from majestic glaciers in Alaska to spectacular reefs in the Caribbean. Our "Cultural" tours allow customers to experience local customs, entertainment and culinary delights ranging from tribal dances in Alaska to an outstanding local meal in Santorini, Greece. Our "Active" tours offer a multitude of exciting and adventurous ways to experience our destinations. Our customers can kayak the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, hike to a spectacular waterfall in Hawaii, or bicycle through quaint villages in France. Our "City" tours allow travelers to see the highlights of great cities around the world with unique insights provided by our expert tour guides.

Our People
In our experience, exceptional travel experiences are almost always delivered by exceptional people. With that in mind, we utilize a comprehensive approach to select and employ the leading tour guides and tour providers around the globe.
